Abstract:

Although we intend this book to be used to teach programming methodology, we realize that programming skills must be learned by writing programs in a particular language. Toward that end, our presentation includes the study of two programming languages, Karel and Pascal, both of which are used as vehicles for developing general programming and problem-solving skills. Pascal is given the more thorough treatment of the two.
